Question: Did Honda ever offer a two tone flame paint job for the 1300?

On my 2005 1300 S, that I bought in 2015, has red on red flames, and no "wings" on the tank. Was this from the factory, or did someone customize it?

Also, where the "Honda" badge is on the side covers, my bike has flames...

Was any of this from the Honda factory?

I am no expert but I can't see Honda choosing to omit their badging/branding so I suspect these are aftermarket parts/paint jobs.

that is a Honda OEM paint scheme.

the flames are actually decals that are applied under the clear coat. and are no longer available and were expensive as hell, $75 - $150 each and depending on the model there could be up to 8 decals. 2 for rear fender 4 for tank 2 for front fender.

the VTX models that came with the flames did not have the VTX wing logos on the tanks. only solid colored models had those.

What about the flame decorations on the side covers pictured above? Were those OEM?

What if your VTX is faster than flames? Maybe Fran can clue us in on that since he has warp drive...

You just close your eyes, and hang on for dear life. Sooner or later warp drive kicks out.
